protecciones del mortero

Yo entiendo que son unas protecciones o apoyos del mortero para las "corbel joints", para proteger la superficie de apoyo. Pero como ves, no estoy muy seguro, es más por dar una posible idea.

Se me olvidó citar este enlace que encontré, por si puede esclarecer la cuestión:

"Mortar crown - The mortar crown is the concrete or mortar pad at the top of the chimney. Its purpose is to shed water and prevent it from entering the chimney chase. A proper mortar crown will overhang the edges of the chimney by an inch or more to prevent water from running down the sides of the chimney. If your mortar crown is cracked or damaged, your local chimney sweep can probably repair it for you."
